With the housing market in a good place, many people are taking this opportunity to sell their home and make memories in a new place. While moving is known as being a stressful time, there are various steps one can take to help make the process a little easier. Regardless if you’re moving near or far, downsizing or moving into a larger home, implement these tips and the moving process will be that much easier.
Hire a Moving Company
The actual process of moving is always the most stressful but it doesn’t have to be. By hiring a moving company, you’ll optimize efficiency, be able to focus on last minute details, and your friends and family won’t have to give up a weekend helping you move your things from your old home to your new one.
Utilize Junk Removal Services
The process of packing up all of your belongings and moving into a new place is going to make you realize how much stuff you have in your current home that you no longer utilize. Use this as an opportunity to purge your attic, basement, and closets of all of these items and give Elite Services Junk Removal & Demolition a call. We’ll pick up your junk and ensure it gets disposed of through the correct channels.
Don’t wait until the last minute to make the necessary arrangements for your big move. Procrastination causes unnecessary stress and we’re trying to avoid that.
One Month Out: Take stock of your belongings, get rid of the items you don’t need, and hire a moving comapny
Two Weeks Out: Purchase any moving supplies you’ll need to pack up your home including boxes, moving tape, sharp scissors, bubble wrap, markers, and moving blankes. Confirm a time with your moving company to start the process (the earlier, the better!) and start packing up your home.
One Week Out: Finish packing up the rooms in your home but leaving the items you use on a daily basis in boxes that aren’t taped so you can easily access them if need be. Leave out enough items you’ll need over the next seven days – toiletries, dishes/utensils, clothing. Eat what you have in your fridge and don’t do any big grocery store runs.
Day Before: Put all of the remaining items into their designated boxes and tape them shut. Make sure to have your clothing for the next day and any essentials in a designated container so you can easily put the lid on it and stick it in the car once you’re ready to head to your new place. Opt for takeout for dinner so you don’t have to worry about dishes. Do a walk through of your home to make sure everything is packed up and ready to go.
Morning Of: Wake up early to pick up breakfast, coffee, and extra water bottles for your family. While the movers pack up your boxes and furniture, do any last minute cleaning and a final walk through of your home to make sure you don’t forget anything.
